Dear workshop participants and those interested:
The Social Theory Workshop is now soliciting presenters for the upcoming academic year, especially Autumn quarter. If you’d like to present (or think you might want to), please submit an abstract and tentative title of your paper by Monday, September 15. The workshop will be meeting on alternate Thursdays at 6pm at Wilder House.
The Social Theory Workshop provides a forum for graduate students, postdocs, and faculty to explore the social theoretical implications of working papers by presenters in the social sciences and humanities. In past years, conversations have addressed themes that include the relation between social and cultural transformations, economic crises of finance and debt, the changing structure of work, patterns of global immigration, colonialism and the global expansion of capital, the politics of social movements, social theory and psychoanalysis, and the relation between modernity and capitalism.
If you are interested in presenting or have questions, please contact the current student coordinator, Fabian Arzuaga: arzuaga [at] uchicago [dot] edu
